Welcome to Security with Style!
Too often a simple oversight can leave you vulnerable to a criminal with a highly-sophisticated plan. This is what happened to our Fraud Expert, John Sileo. One mortgage document thrown in the trash can (instead of being shredded) was sold on the black market to someone who used his identity to not only buy a home, but then file bankruptcy. For our Vice President, Tracey, and her husband, someone fraudulently filed their taxes to obtain their refund money. They realized this when they received a tax refund check in the mail before they had even filed their taxes.
Identity theft is complex, and resolving fraudulent activity involves a tremendous amount of time, endless headaches and stress. As your trusted check provider since 1986, Styles Checks, in partnership with a team of fraud experts, will use this blog to regularly share simple tips and resources to help prevent identity theft and check fraud with you, our friends and customers. We’ll also discuss some of the latest technologies, such as digital glasses, and associated risks of being breached.
